Now I admit that putting in an O-O-U reference that that was unusual, but the usefulness of the information seemed to justify it.  There's no real feel for how large many of these regions in Middle Earth are, and that seemed to be a helpful description.  I checked it out, and Cali was about the right size.{{unsigned|Theoden1}}

There are several links to the Fall of Númenor. Should that and this article be seperate, or should Fall of Númenor redirect to here? --Narfil Palùrfalas 16:53, 17 May 2006 (EDT)

You and your redirects :p I definitely think Númenor and the Fall of Númenor are entirely different and should be left separate. If we need to remove the bulk of information on the actual destruction from Númenor to the Fall of Númenor article then that would be fine by me. --Hyarion 18:06, 17 May 2006 (EDT)
I was just wondering. We have I think three Fall of Númenor links, and I didn't know whether you wanted them together or seperate. I agree that a seperate article would be best. Thanks! --Narfil Palùrfalas 05:32, 18 May 2006 (EDT)


[edit] S.A. 3265

Does anyone know and has reference of this year as the beginning of the Melkor worshiping? It is written so in the infobox. All that I could find so far was S.A. 3262, which is the beginning of Sauron's influence over Númenor. But nothing on the actual year when their religion changed. ~~ Þelma 14:43, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

It says c., "circa". Which is not very precise, and not very encyclopedic. Maybe "Shortly after 3262" or something? -- Ederchil 15:07, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
That works for me. In this case "Shortly after 3262" is more accurate than "circa S.A. 3265" ~~ Þelma 15:20, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
